Newcomer Josh Duhamel joined the cast of All My Children in November 1999 as Leo du Pres.
Born and raised in Minot, North Dakota, Josh attended Minot State University, playing collegiate-level football and basketball. He earned a bachelor of science degree in biology, with plans of a career in dentistry. Not being content with his plans for the future, Josh moved to Los Angeles and began to purse an acting career.
During his time in Los Angeles, Josh auditioned for All My Children and then went to Europe, where he starred in his first leading role as Dorian Gray, in an adaptation of Oscar Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray. After completing the film, he was notified to pack his bags and head for New York City, where he landed the role as Leo du Pres. Josh is adjusting well to life in New York City, and when he is not working, he enjoys basketball, football, skiing and golf. He currently resides in Manhattan.
